Recently Gamestop updated their listing for the US release of Heavy Rain stating that the Pre-Order bonus code to download first chapter of the Heavy Rain Chronicles, The Taxidermist would be delayed.
Due to a delay by the publisher, this content will not be available for download until Thursday, March 4, 2010.
Its not clear if the content codes will still be distributed normally but not be available for download until a later date, or if buyers will have to go back to the store to pick them up after the fact.
According to an article on VG247, this delay does not effect European gamers who purchase the Collector’s Edition though HMV.
“Anyone who has pre-ordered, or buys the special edition from HMV, will be able to download it from day one as promised,” a Sony rep told us.
“Other European territories gave the first Chronicle away via other means, and they will also get it day one.”
For anyone who hasn’t pre-ordered or won’t be getting the special edition, a date for the public PSN release of Chronicles’ initial episode is yet to be decided.
